    I'm awful at Alien Nation and Nex Machina, I think my brain works better in a 3D space so I'm glad they've went that way. I'm surprised Sony hasn't brought them in house yet to be honest.

    Woo, just completed Act 3! Got the achievement pop for defeating ophion too! Can't say the ending made much sense to me, will Google for interpretations etc.

    Other than the completing the 6 surveys the only missing trophy is complete act 2... so I guess to get that I would need to start a new save data file.

    Fuck that. Think I'm done other than having some casual runs as and when it takes my fancy. 51 hrs, 42 deaths and 4092 hostiles eliminated.

    Actually, am thinking I might cash it in, cex still offering £39 quid, I only paid 51 with postage on ebay.

    After banging my head on B5 for several nights ,getting melted before collecting even a single key, i put together a great build in B4 with some bullshit hollow seeker perks and adrenaline damage multipliers. Was a procession to the end of Act 2, and kind of anti-climatic with how overpowered i felt. It's so weird how the game can absolutely beat you up over many cycles and then bam you get a couple of good drops and just snowball into a tentacle-severing demigod.

    I love this game. My favourite since Bloodborne.

    After 5 days ownership and about 30 deaths I made it to the B1 boss last night. Probably could have got it down to the final stage but I went in with a depleted health bar, unlike that fucker.
    That is progress in my book, very enjoyable.

    New patch for Monday, looks like it will make it easier to find some scout logs and balance updates.

    I don't know whether to laugh or cry. I must have done B1 close to 100 times at this point.

    That's funny, I did wonder about the out of sync audio in the second ending.

    Just had a quick go of the patch. They've somehow made the sound even more amazing.

    Yeah, I noticed that. Ive been trying to level up guns that I dont use that much and, yeah, most if not all of them are viable. Still havent touched the shotgun but dreadbound and pyrocaster are beasts when you get a few traits going.

    Yeah the perks system is quietly excellent and really rewards actually stepping out of your comfort zone for a bit.

    Looking forward to trying it now, I assumed it would just be balancing tweaks and bug fixes.

    I had a couple of hours play of it on Friday and then decided to wait for the patch.

    It really is amazing isn't it? Proper next gen stuff and the opening gave me Strong Aliens vibes.

    I take it red doors on the mini map mean something bigger and scary that will fuck me up is waiting for me?

    @Rum_Monkey Red door means a room leading to the end-of-biome boss. If you're just starting out, you probably want to clear as much of the rest of the Biome as you can first, to power up.

    Red doors are the entrance to the boss. Yellow doors are optional challenge rooms, dark blue doors optional areas, light blue doors the path to the objective.

    I found that in my first run so glad I avoided it.

    Always looked light blue to me. This isn't going to be another one of those "people see colours differently" things is it.

    Maybe we can agree on turquoise/cyan, which is a mixture of blue and green by definition.

    Edit:
    Funnily enough, that red circle wasn't made by me...

    Iím sure they are green. They are more or less the same colour as the wrist UI thing.

    Think we need to see some CMYK values before we can jump to conclusions here. This is important.

    It absolutely is. If someone with Photoshop could take a sample of the above screenshot, please?

    I'd say it lies somewhere between Man City, and Coventry circa 1990's Peugeot kits.

    Any excuse to post the old checkerboard illusion. Squares "A" and "B" are exactly the same shade of grey.

    Yeah turquoise is probably the best way to describe it.
